First Post Back (November 9, 2018)

in Blog Update

The first post back after a long hiatus is always a bit tough… Really, so much has happened since my last update and there’s really a lot of things I want to share/say…

In all honestly, things have been going extremely well, and I sort of wanted to hold back on posting until my latest real estate transaction was completed and I could come out with a “surprise” blog post for you all…

Unfortunately, as anyone who has ever dealt with a real estate transaction knows, there’s always a lot of details to account for and stuff that goes on behind the scenes… Long story short, I’m still wrapping up some loose ends, so hopefully I’ll have a better update in store for you guys in the next 2-3 weeks or so…

Anyway, without being entirely too vague, yes, my full intent at this time is to purchase a condo unit in Manila (Bonifacio Global City) which will serve as my primary residence. Yup, my long-term plans are to stay right here in Manila and attempt my own unique version of early financial independence…

I realize that this “new direction” is rubbing certain people the wrong way, and naturally, there are a lot of critics/skeptics/doubters/etc. and just peeps who think I’m batshit crazy…

 

Again…

 

Or even going through depression?!?

 

 

Well, I guess I’m not surprised, I mean I’ve been blogging for a long time now, and gone off on many “unorthodox” tangents in my life…

 

But actually, believe it or not, I’m in a very good place right now in life and although 2018 has been an extremely tough year (mostly due to my most horrendous Shitcago experience from earlier this year), things have turned around for me and I can honestly say that I’m at peace and happy now…

 

Losing money sucks ass, but it’s not everything…

 

And besides, I’ve got bigger plans for the future, and if I’m ever gonna get there, then I’ve got to learn to bury the hatchet and move on with my life…

 

You win some, you lose some…

 

Straight up — At the end of the day, I’m still incredibly blessed and luckier than a great majority of people on this planet… I’m dumb as fuck (you all know that), but have been tremendously fortunate to have made good money in both my engineering and investing careers…

 

So, I ain’t about to bitch, moan, and complain now…

 

Life is good…

 

I just needed some time away to get situated… and to take care of many, many errands.

 

More details to come!

 

And I apologize for the delay in releasing the Clean Tech eBook… Unfortunately, over the last month because of the real estate deal (not to mention personal life stuff that came up), I just couldn’t fully immerse myself in writing… and quite frankly, in order for me to produce QUALITY work, that’s just something I really need to do… So, I’d rather delay a launch date than to rush something out just to say that I was able to meet a deadline…

 

But make no mistake about it, I am aware of my procrastinations and I am sorry for the delays… No doubt, I need to do a much better job with time management…

 

With that said, I’ve never been more excited for the future!

 

And for sure, there’s a lot more for me to share and say…

 

Slowly but surely, I’m chasing my dreams and doing my best to live the life that I’ve always wanted.

 

Fight On!

I say this in the most facetious way, you have investing ADD. Your style of investing may not be for everyone, however it has given me knowledge which did lead me to my own investment strategies and style. In that I appreciate your work and thoughts.
